Compass Children's Ministry exists to glorify God by helping parents and kids navigate their spiritual journey as we follow Jesus in any direction He leads.

 

As Lakeside seeks to "connect people to Jesus Christ," we recognize that supporting parents as they train their children to follow Christ is invaluable.  The church has been called by our Savior, Jesus Christ, to accomplish one thing: make disciples who make disciples.  God has called the local church to make disciples of Jesus Christ in children, not ignore them or parent them.  

 

Too often, children's ministry ignores the most important person in a child's life - the parent.  Lakeside seeks to support and equip parents to be successful parents. 

At Lakeside, we believe that children need help to build a firm foundation in God's Word and to grow into solid disciples of Jesus Christ.

QUEST CLUB exists to glorify God by training and equipping children on their journey of becoming fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ.

CHILDREN'S SERVICE is a weekly environment for children 3 years old (who are potty trained) through PreK, and an older group of children Kindergarten through 5th grade.

 

PARENTS

Too often, children's ministry ignores the most important person in a child's life - the parent.  Part of helping parents to become fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ is providing help and training to "equip them for the ministry" of discipling their children and being godly parents.  It is for this reason we take seriously and intentionally plan into our week to week children's environments ways for parents to connect with their children around what the kids are learning.  It is for this reason we also have planned into our church-wide calendar several times a year that everything else at Lakeside will shut down for one night so that your entire family can be together for worship and learning on our Family Nights.

SUNDAY SCHOOL

The vast majority of children today are spiritually malnourished. They know more about video games than they know about God, they love peer approval more than they love Jesus, and they serve themselves before they consider the needs of others.

 

At Lakeside, we believe that children need help to build a firm foundation in God's Word and to grow into solid disciples of Jesus Christ.  To reach this goal,  our children's Sunday School uses the Discipleland® curriculum.

 

Discipleland® partners with our teachers and parents  to lead children to:

 

>> know God intimately: children develop a reservoir of knowledge based on a Biblical worldview.

 

>> love God passionately: children are challenged to display Christlike character in every area of life.

 

>> serve God selflessly: children are encouraged and equipped to demonstrate faithful conduct that honors God and helps people.

QUEST

QUEST CLUB exists to glorify God by training and equipping children on their journey of becoming fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ.

 

1 John 2:6 He who says he abides in Him ought himself also to walk just as He walked.

 

Quest Club is a child friendly environment of LESSON TIME, SMALL GROUP TIME, & ACTIVITY TIME.

 

Lessons are coordinated with the memory verses that students work on each week to maximize impact and understanding.

 

Small Group Time follows up on questions and helps children work through applying what they learn.  It is also the time for students to recite verses they've memorized or complete other projects from the week.

 

Activity Time is a variety portion of games, crafts, special activities, and object lessons that tie in with what they've learned in lesson time.

 

CHILDREN'S CHURCH

CHILDREN'S CHURCH is a weekly environment for children 3 years old (who are potty trained) through PreK, and an older group of children Kindergarten through 3rd grade.

 

 

This time helps both parents & children who are not yet accustomed to church and participating in the main service.  The younger group begins at 10:30am in their room while the older group participates in the first parts of the main worship service before being dismissed for an age focused lesson time.

 

 

Lesson Time, Games, Snacks, Crafts, Singing, Prayer, & Offering help to train young people toward joining in the regular service as they get older.
